Acclaimed author Harlow Giles Unger paints an intimate and detailed portrait of the heroic young French soldier who, at nineteen, renounced a life of luxury in Paris and Versailles to fight and bleed for liberty—at Brandywine, Valley Forge, and Yorktown. In a tale filled with adventure, romance, political intrigue, Unger follows Lafayette from the battlefields of North America to the palace of Versailles.
